    Thanks Deangang! Shooting for April/May and leaving gel coat for next season. As AZGEO stated adding plates to a boat without plates is not cheap!! The plates at the keel measure 16 inches from the transom.

    Those plates are legit! Should really plow through the chop. There’s nothing about these boats that are cheap . I can only imagine what the new cav system is running you. I just put new plates on my 22 and did all the work myself and it was ugly on the wallet lol. You should be super stoked once you get her all dialed in . Look forward to more of your updates .

    Nice to see another Vaughn! Looks good. I have a 79 I/O Vaughn. Great riding boat. I get a lot of questions about it out on the water. 20161001_075407.jpg 20161001_075433.jpg

    Do you need pillow blocks? I have a set made for a 21 Schiada. Stainless. They are what Schiada uses on the new builds. IMG_9676.JPG IMG_9677.JPG

    Thank you. It does great. It is heavy and with a little tab down it cuts right through.

    2018 went by quick! Back at it with these buckets getting finished then can start on laying out the dash and installing the steering.

    We capped the transom and about 6 inches up the sides from the transom. The rest will have stainless rub rail.

    Nice! We did 1" stainless all around (*PITA) making the bends at the bow and transom corners LOL!!!! If you have not already bought the rub rail - check out West Marine - they ship to 'your nearest' West Marine location!
    Keep Posting Progress!!!

    Have you done any V-drive mods on the Cole 20SS and Superhawk/Nighthawk? Are the measurement the same for the Cole's as listed above?

    Finished up the motor plate adjustments, water pump, crank trigger ignition, custom pulleys alt bracket and fuel filter head mount. Used ASP out of Texas for the pulleys and would highly recommend them for any custom pulley.
